Recertification Requirements

Q: Where can I re-affirm my commitment to the IHRP Code of Professional Conduct?
A: You can do this on the online application form.
Q: What happens if I do not have 45 CPD hours to recertify?
A: We have revised the CPD hours to 45 hours and this is applicable only for those who are due for recertification in 2022. 
For those whose recertification was due in year 2021, please contact recertification@ihrp.sg for next steps.
Q: Am I able to clock non-IHRP learning activities towards my CPD Hours?
A: Yes, as long as they are aligned with our IHRP Body of Competencies. You can attend courses, workshops or seminars from any provider (including online).
Q: Do I need IHRP to formally verify my CPD activities before submitting my application?
A: No. Please proceed to submit your application once you have logged your CPD activities.
Q: Can I still apply for recertification if I am currently not in an HR role?
A: Yes. Please email community@ihrp.sg for a case-by-case review.
Q: When should I submit my application?
A: You are encouraged to submit your application with payment minimally 3-4 weeks before your certification end date to prevent your certification from lapsing.
Q: Am I still able to apply for recertification if my current certification has lapsed?
A: Yes. However, you will lose access to your IHRP Connect access during the period of lapse. Do note that if your certificate remains inactive for several months, the system will trigger removal from our IHRP registry, and you will need to retake the full certification assessment papers again. As you have already utilised the one-time government subsidy, the re-take is priced at the full standard fee of $1,500 for IHRP-CP and $2,500 for IHRP-SP respectively.
